two-wheeled thoughts: Madelyne Bridges

two-wheeled thoughts

the maiden with her wheel of old
sat by the fire to spin,
while lightly through her careful hold
the flax slid out and in
today her distaff, rock and reel
far out of sight are hurled
and now the maiden with her wheel
goes spinning round the world
–Madelyne Bridges, Outing magazine, September 1893, as quoted in Around the World on Two Wheels
